A Brexit from the EU – Better or Worse from a Tax Perspective?

    View Authors June 2016

    Last week’s historic vote by the United Kingdom (UK) to leave the European Union (EU) has caused us all to ponder the wide-reaching implications that will flow from this decision. Here, we provide an overview of the potential tax issues that multinational companies will have to address in connection with the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, including indirect taxes, interest, royalty and dividend flows, and the overarching OECD/EU BEPS project. We also address potential implications of using the UK as a holding company jurisdiction in a post-Brexit world.
